Custodial Services

Each building is assigned a custodian team that is responsible for the general cleanliness and appearance of the building.  Their primary work area is the public areas of a building, which includes bathrooms, recreation rooms, kitchens, and lobbies.  Custodians generally work from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Restroom cleaning times are staggered and based on the availability of staff from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The times are posted on each restroom door.  These times are set to help the custodial staff complete the required task in their building each day.  Restrooms are not available for use during cleaning times.

After Hours /Weekends

Custodial coverage on weekends is limited.  Most weekend coverage work includes “trashing out” the bathrooms and restocking the supplies such as toilet paper and paper towels.  The bathrooms are not cleaned to the standard that is typical during the normal work week.  If a restroom needs major attention over a weekend, that area may be locked off and the regular custodian will address it on Monday. Weekend cleaning times will vary but restrooms will still be closed off when they are being cleaned.
